Thread Name: Origins: The Bows of London
Subject: RE: Origins: Whence 'The Bows of London'?
There is an area of East London which is called Bow. Although it is not the most salubrious areas, it has given rise to what I think is one of the nicest sounding station names. i.e. Bromley by Bow. Does that name not call out for a poem, a song, or what?
